  1. With the way this show went I will bet money Amy and Penny end up in bed/kissing/naked at some point, it's just a matter of time.
  2. Too late they've changed their target audience now. I look around the Internet and the fans I see now compared to the begining are mainly female and they want more drama and relationship stuff. The original format and dynamic was thrown away and it's not coming back.
  3. Homeland and American Haunting have just finished so now just Castle and Fringe.
  4. That was a hangover from the original pilot before they'd established the character it's pretty obvious he's non sexual. Them getting together would be like brother and sister getting it very very wrong. Their chemistry is not sexual at all.
  5. I don't agree with this growth thing. Look at Friends, ten seasons and at the end the characters were very recognisable as themselves. They went through many different experiences but were basically the same characters. No one was added to the cast and even major extra characters like Ross's second wife and Pheobes husband were kept to a bare minimum. They kept the basic premise and dynamic throughout the entire ten seasons. It's a sitcom not a soap or drama there isn't a massive need for character growth. Amy is the reason I haven't watched the last episode or two, it just got too much and had become the Amy show rather than The Big Bang Theory.
  6. You're right. It's not that they went "right let's make this a show for women!" but it's part of their push to be more mainstream. They will have had focus groups and executives telling them to be more female friendly. That there's too much geek stuff and focus on the guys and that puts women off(which I don't think is true). "We need more drama, romance and gossip cause that's what women are into!" again I don't think that's true but it a typical media view. You have to remember even Penny wasn't a major character at first, she was just there as a love interest for Leonard. The main focus of the show was the guys and geek/science humour. Now Raj and Howard are basically extras, Amy is the entire focus of the show and the intelligent, geek, science stuff is given maybe the odd crappy reference if they can be bothered.
  7. People saying this isn't an Amy episode have me thinking I might change my mind and watch this. Then Sheldon is buying her an apology present and she's breaking into song. I just can't watch anymore while she's in it. The fact her and Bernadette appeared in the People's Choice clips shows they are now considered main characters on equal terms with the rest of the cast. That I hate with a passion. Then they get more lines than some of the established originals. I'm sad to say it but I'm done, I hate giving up and even though the season four finale ruined the show I really tried to force myself into giving them a chance to come back, but they've just gotten worse and worse. Its now a different show to the one I got into, they've turned an original and intelligent show into a cheap unfunny Friends clone. The difference being Friends was actually good and consistent from start to finish. When even the description of a show makes you sad and angry it's time to admit its over. Bye people.
  8. Poor Howard hardly gets any lines even in an intro lol
  9. Too many characters as it is. Let's get back to the originals and cut the extras back to the odd appearance here and there.
  10. The last thing this series needs is yet another character. Amy and Bernie have ruined season five and taken enough time away from the main cast as it is.
  11. I think it depends on your outlook. I really liked Friends and I enjoyed it up until it finished. I could see it wasn't as good as before but I still enjoyed it. But people I know stopped watching it around season 4 or 5 I think saying it had got to slapstick and over the top. I see myself having the same feeling with TBBT for different reasons. As much as I liked Friends and had to watch every single episode I think I'm more emotionally involved with TBBT so I get more upset about the changes.

    Amy.

    Why do they have to do this? It's a show about four nerds and a girl who lives across the hall from two of them. Why would they have to represent all types of women or have to have main cast represent them? Should Sex And The City have introduce four main cast guys to represent all types of guys? Note not extras who are boyfriends or occasional characters, but main cast who have entire episodes devoted to them like Amy. Why do we have to ruin shows for the sake of political correctness? If we go down that route we also need a confident out going Asian man, there's no black main cast character either so that's another one we need, then of course we need to bring back Pryia and add a black female so another cast member to add. It going to get crowded. Let's not forget we had a far better example in Leslie and they got rid of her for this unfunny closet lesbian.
  13. I think the Howard and Raj scenes have worked well because of his mutism. But I do think they should have worked in a catch that he can talk to a girl once he knows her well enough or if she's dating one of his friends "because they're like my sisters now" or something. They still get to use the mutism on occasion but he can talk to Penny, Bernadette and Amy giving him more lines.

    Kaley

    Not that I know or think its what's happening but for the sake of wild speculation what's Kaleys contract situation? She did a movie and some TV people get swayed by films. Could it be more the writers covering themselves in case she decides she wants out to go do films full time?
  15. I wonder if the actress had other offers and they had to offer her a big contract to stay? This would explain them using her more and more as they would want value for their money. This Season has become The Big Amy Theory.
  16. I'll just copy my ideas from the other thread. I'd like to see an episode where Amy catches a deadly disease from her monkey test subjects and dies a horrible painful death. Raj turns out to be evil Raj who has had the real Raj locked up in a underground lair since the end of season three. The real Raj escapes and exposes his evil twin. Bearnadette runs off with her ex from the conference reverting Howard back to his old ways. Penny gets a acting job and starts dating the star of the show who convinces her to go to AA. Leonard manages to talk that comic shop girl into giving him another chance. Sheldon decides to recommit to his scientific studies dispensing with any attempts to normalise himself. The writers realise intelligent well written humour can be mainstream too. Not many laughs in there I guess. Well apart from the Amy thing.
  17. They screwed Raj over last season turning him into Evil Raj who likes to try and steal his friends fiancé and then the whole finale. Seems its Pennys turn now.
  18. Now this is actually an interesting point. Why am I still watching? I’m pondering that, but I think it will need a bit of self reflection and will probably turn out to require a long post to respond properly. I may just do that and possibly post it as a farewell in the welcome wagon forum when the time comes (and I think the time may be coming soon). The short answer at this point is that it takes a while to ratchet down from being totally obsessed with the show. I mean I was really obsessed. I was a total fan. But that is passing – unfortunately this also means that I’m a bit obsessed with the changes to the show as well. Perhaps there is a certain part of me that hopes the show will return to its roots and I’ll like it again. For me it's simple. I don't like giving up. I was a huge fan through seasons 1 to 3 and could put up with most of season 4 until that finale. Now as much as I hate seeing them take a huge dump over the show I loved there's that optimistic part of me that says "Maybe just maybe they will do something amazing and save the show!" and if I don't watch I'll miss it. But having read the show report for the next episode it'll be the first time I will skip an episode. This is how I'm going from now on. I'll skim through a run down of the ep if it sounds bad or like most of season five is based around Amy or normalising Sheldon I won't watch. As for the rest a forum is for debate both good and bad this thread is pretty obviously going to be negative so it's easily avoided. I follow football(soccer) and I'm an Arsenal fan. We had a terrible start to the season and lots of fans were unhappy. Should they just stop watching and supporting their team? Or should they debate and talk about what's going wrong and what can be done to fix it?
  19. It's like a car crash. You know you shouldn't stare but you can't help but watch the carnage. That said having read some spoilers on episode 12 I will be skipping that one for the first time.
  20. They seem to be turning Penny into the original version from the first pilot. Kinda strange since they obviously thought that version wasn't what they needed for the show.
  21. Fantastic post Beecharmer. They really are trying to turn this into Friends Lite. You're right that plenty of women liked this show from the beginning but TV executives don't use common sense. So we're now stuck with Amy and Bernadette who just aren't up to becoming main characters. Along with them deciding they need more female characters comes the laugh at he nerds not with them change. Nerds being human just isn't mainstream. Once again Howard and Raj are pretty much invisible, sacrificed so Amy and Bernie can have more screen time. Once again more low brow jokes. It's like they've given even trying to pretend they care.
  22. Big fan of the original(Vegas). Never got into the others. Was a bit worried about Danson at first but he's grown on me big time.
  23. I agree, what I have seen so far is top notch! No complaints this end I realize that some of the posters here do not have a lot of experience with sex. At least with other people. I am here to help. When you are having sex with a real live person, you are not laying on your back looking at the ceiling, until you are ready to put on the condom and roll over. The other person is Right There, you are as close to that person as you will ever be to anyone, it is very intimate and physical. And that's before the "intercourse" begins. Now, some have said that Penny and Raj did not have "intercourse"(= only thing ITHO that can be called sex). Technically, that is true, although we only have that slimeball Raj's word on that. According to Raj, Penny "baiting the hook" was the cause of his misfire. I have to tell you that before putting the condom on is even possible, things have to progress to a certain point. Now, there's this thing that guys like that helps with that. Given her history, I'm sure Penny knows what it is. Do I need to draw a picture? The fact is, whatever your definition, it was "close enough for horseshoes and hand grenades" to sex. As far as why people can't see how wrong it was for the show, that's a hole nother topic. Myself and others have said this over and over you're in a losing battle. Those that don't want to admit this just use the fingers in ears shouting "la la la! I can't hear you!" method of debate. It was a mistake, they crowbarred in some controversy despite it going against character and messing up the shows dynamic. They've turned the show in a completely different direction. I've said it before when people look back this show at the end the season 4 finale will be the jump the shark moment.
  24. I'd like to see an episode where Amy catches a deadly disease from her monkey test subjects and dies a horrible painful death. Raj turns out to be evil Raj who has the real Raj locked up in a underground lair since the end of season three. The real Raj escapes and exposes his evil twin. Bearnadette runs off with her ex from the conference reverting Howard back to his old ways. Penny gets a acting job and starts dating the star of the show who convinces her to go to AA.

  25. Good idea. They've dressed up as superheroes before, it would be good for them to have the characters make up their own.
